Before they got out, I hit the pool for a little swim. I did 38, 50ms, or 19, 100ms for 1900 meters in 45 minutes. I tried to concentrate on my form, my breathing and using my legs more. It was my first swim in 2 weeks.
Remember I mentioned that on my first Brick (HERE) I got severe cramps in my calves and TriGuru said that I was pedaling wrong? Well, apparently, I pedal with my toes and that is WRONG. Apparently by pedaling with my toes, I am not using my quads and as a cyclist, you are supposed to use your quads (which did not hurt at all - because I wasn't using them). TriGuru rode behind me and watched and it was mostly on my right foot. I tried not to pedal with my toes, but it was definitely something I was going to have to work at.
I pedaled, albeit slowly, and Brock "scooted" pretty fast for a short guy. I think we went a little over a mile in 30 minutes. We rested a couple of times and I was able to successfully get off my bike without falling. YAY!
